Tree removal – starting 6 December, 2019
A number of trees will be removed along Railway Avenue (south of Denny Avenue) to enable the main construction work.
The Public Transport Authority is committed to removing trees only where completely necessary. This includes where roads will be widened and realigned, where ground level changes will damage tree root systems and where existing service utilities may need to be relocated.
Work will start on 6 December 2019 on Railway Avenue, and it is expected this first stage of tree removal work will be complete before the end of the year.
The work will take place between 7:00am and 7:00pm from Monday to Saturday and during this time there will be increased noise from the machinery being used including a mulcher, truck-mounted cherry picker, chainsaw, stump grinder and excavator.
During the work, there may be impacts to local roads to ensure work can be carried out safely. On-site traffic management, as approved by the City of Armadale, will assist with minimising impacts.
Utility relocations – starting early 2020
With changes to the road network a major part of the project, some service utilities will need to be relocated.
The first relocation works will be re-laying ATCO Gas pipes that are located beneath the road surface.
This work will start in early 2020, and residents living near to works will be provided more information closer to the start of works.
Additional utility relocation works will start in early 2020, and the community will be kept up-to-date.
